7-Month Photocard Driving Licence Extension Granted
If your photocard driving licence is due to expire between the 1st of February and 31st of August 2020, you now have an extra seven-months to renew it.
The extension comes into effect as of today (4th June 2020).
This will help drivers to make necessary journeys without having to obtain a new photograph to renew their licence.
Normally drivers have to renew their photocard licence every 10 years, and bus and lorry drivers every 5 years.
The extension is the result of the introduction of a new EU regulation.
DVLA Chief Executive Julie Lennard said:
“This extension will make it easier for drivers who need to update their photocard licence with a new photograph.
This means as long as they have a valid licence, drivers will be able to continue to make essential journeys.
The extension is automatic so drivers do not need to do anything and will be sent a reminder to renew their photocard before the extension ends.
This change will be introduced from 4 June 2020”.
If a driver’s entitlement to drive is due to expire and they wish to continue to hold a valid licence, they will need to renew this entitlement in the normal way.
